Zipp's limited edition wheel brings retro cool to TT efforts
Zipp’s 30th anniversary edition of its Super-9 Carbon Clincher Disc puts an old-school twist on its high-end time-trial wheel. This limited edition shares the same colours as the original Zipp Disc that the company launched 30 years ago.
The pro-proven wheel is optimised for aerodynamics. Interestingly, non-parallel brake tracks are claimed to improve airflow from tyre to wheel and the distinctive dimple pattern across the disc’s surface is purported to reduce drag even further.
Similar to a golf ball, the dimples are designed to reduce pressure dragZipp
The Super-9 Disc wheel weighs in at 1,155g for the rim brake and 1,175g for the disc version.
The wheel retails for £2,169 / €2,429 / $,2875 and is available now.
